Thank you for all your reaseach! I based my g-gfather Aaron Hills birth date on his death certificate and other records. Please see link:

This my maternal grandfather Jerman is the informant on his fathers death certificate and the Jermans proper address is listed there aswell!

If you notice Jerman's new wife Margerte Cole is the informant on his death certificate and probably did not list the proper full name for Jermans mother. Her name was Maggie and she was rumored to be white "caucasian" which is why I think margeret said his mothers name was Maggie White.

1886 you see Aaron Hill marry Maggie Spruill in Raliegh.Please see link:

After working with several genweb researchers and those at familysearch in Utah I became convinced that the following family is Aaron Hills See Link:

A researcher at family search told me that the surname "White" has the same meaning or is pronounced Spruill according to a surname dictionary/reference book that she allegedly had there. No other researcher that I have asked to confirm this has heard this before.

As you now know in 1900 you see Aaron living with his younger brother George and thier spouses, but you won't find another Aaron and Maggie anywhere else.

Maggie seems to disappears from the face of the earth, then in 1910 you see Aaron with TWO young children listed as BOARDERS with the Hill surname living with Aaron, new wife Jeanette "Jennie" Hatcher-Williams-Hill and her parents the Hatchers. I don't know what happened to the 7 month old baby Wilmer L. Hill either after that point in time. Jennie is later listed as Jermans mother but she is not his biological mother as Jennies parents indicated on the 1910 census report. What happened to Aarons first wife Maggie??

Addtionally, if Aaron is listed as being 50 years old in the 1910 Census his birthdate would have to be on or about 1860!!!!

See what I mean? What say you??

I pray that someone here is either related or has information regarding my Alston, Spruill, Hill family members.

Does anyone know of Nelson Alston Birth Year:

abt 1846 near Robeson County, NC ???? Nelson married Mary Johnson in Shoe Hill Robeson Co., NC 12 Feb 1876

Thanks again thomasker2

P.S. For the record my maternal grandfather Jerman Everett Hill was the head baker at the legendary Pooles Pie Shop in NC from the 1940's until he died 1968! :-))SEE link:
